I have gotten better at servicing my watches over the last couple of months , I have a couple watches that are running slow and one running fast ,I don't have a timing machine , does any body use a phone app to time their watch and what type do you use , I have Clock Tuner, and Tic-O-print but can't make heads or tails , any help would be appreciated

Kevin go on ebay and screach for weishi no. 1000 it is a cheap timning machine that works great you check how many degress of amp check the beat etc. good machine without spending much money..

when i went from the old l&r b200 to a electronic timning machine i tried one of these before i spend 1000.00 plus dollars on the real nice timning machines to see how i would like them...

After the frist few times i tried it i decided i would never go back to the old machines again.

There is 2 different types of pickups for these get the one that be used for both pocket and wristwatches.

Hi Kevin,

I agree with Samie's advice... after a lot of research I pulled the trigger on a Weishi 1900 Time-grapher. This model has a color screen. very nice machine and simple to use.


Kindest regards,

Serge

Yes Sir, I know exactly what your going through. I started down this path about 6 years ago and have learned a great deal and made some painful mistakes along the way. It is however very rewarding to bring a pocket watch back to life Big Grin


Kindest regards,

Serge
